I have been working at Icertis full-time (More than a year)
Hyper-growth = lots of opportunities to grow and develop. Company is well funded and is tops in a rapidly expanding market. People are hard working and driven but friendly and fun to work with. Company is values driven - FORTE: Fairness, Openness, Respect, Teamwork and Execution.
Hyper growth = growing pains. Like all fast moving companies, systems and processes need to evolve rapidly to support the business. Self-starters will do well here - the place favors people who drive and ask for forgiveness rather than permission
Advice to Management
Continue to keep the hiring bar high. Invest in systems, processes, and people in order to drive scale.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Icertis (Bellevue, WA (US)) in January 2020.
An impressive piece of software with great potential, marred by a company who reeks of desperation and an inability to keep up with client demands.
Right away I was wary when they rescheduled my interview for the evening during a snowstorm. Late, dark, and dangerous I risked my neck to get down there only to be massively disappointed. The interviewer seemed tired and unfocused, and most of the time was spent with me asking a bunch of basic questions that should have already been covered by her initial spiel. Icertis was looking for someone who would require zero training and be perfect out of the gate, hammering home the ideas of consistency and perfection with zero direction. They also displayed red flags of an inability to keep up with client demands, and refusal to adjust their expectations in-line with the amount of work needed and their general lack of manpower. An unrealistic expectation at the rate they were offering.
I wish them luck, but without some major changes internally I don't see them succeeding on fumes alone.
